Words that motivate you...
Obviously there's Wind in my face but I also like the following.
"You don't need a power meter to know that you're shit on the bike"
"Just finishing is just that, just finishing - big deal'"
"Ironman is the new Race4Life" RW Forum
and many, many more...
I tend to opt for news stories to inspire me these days. The more relevant, topical and significant the better of course.As you were.
After the Transalpine run I was in poor condition,I very nearly needed a morticianBut now I'm back in almost tip-top condition
Hope you like it. It nearly rhymes and scans and everything.
Just reading the Fink thread....reminded me of the following sage words
"No point worrying about the 2nd half of the marathon in a Ironman until you're sure you'll reach it "
race long into the night-time
talk mostly bollocks
Nothing to do with tri really but I like, in a take the piss kind of way -
you rest, you rust
some people have a wish bone where the backbone should be
both apply to me!
"winner - winner - chicken dinner"
I'll take that "winner - winner - chicken dinner" for the next time I'm struggling.
I sing the Graham and Brown SuperFresco wallpaper ad tune of "What goes up must come down." I picture the bloke wallpapering and think that would be a worse activity to be involved in which inspires me to keep pedalling.
That's a personal fav advert super-tune!
